Default those things have a supercharger!??

yesterday i was out looking at cars with the girlfriend at all the car lots in town.. came across a 02 ssei... gold with tan interior... nice looking car.. i get out and start looking at it.. instantly the salesman is hounding me.. i played completely dumb.

salesman: hey hows it going
me: good
salesman: is there something you were looking for?
me: oh, the girlfriend needs a car, but she is to nervous to look for herself
salesman: she like this car? (pointing at bonneville)
me: no, but i do for myself (im driving my lumina)
salesman: ya its very nice, its a bonneville
me: oh ya?
saleman: ya, its supercharged and everything, very fast!
me: really?
salesman: ya, its open if you want to take a look

at this point i opened the door and sat inside...started playing with all the buttons, asking about the DIC and everything...

salesman: it has heated power seats!
me: where? (i pretended not to know where the buttons were! ha!)

i gave up with my BS game at this point, cuz i was almost ready to bust a gut... so i said thanks and left...

the punchline you ask?

i was wearing this shirt!!!

LMAO!

Just before i bout the GXP i took it to the local Pontiac Dealership...

Wanted a few things looked at seats mainly the guy said well thats a nice looking Grand Prix It has the 3.8 */C... i was like no Its a Bonneville oh but how do you like the 3.8 */C'ed i said i wouldnt know its got a V8 ( No way they don't put V8'* in Bonneville'*) I opened the Hood. At that point i said so for service i should go to the other dealership right. Even with the engine cover he was arguing with me saying someone put that in there and there'* no way its a N* this guy is the service manager at the Pontiac dealership lol

About a month ago we went and test drove a 2005 GP GTP. The salesman kept saying how smooth the "overhead cam" 3.8 is in the Grand Prix "GXP" I just played dumb and agreed with him...
